Jessens

Georgianne and Christopher Jessen moved to the Coeur d'Alene area in 2002. Both come from backgrounds in health care. Georgianne started her career as a registered nurse and retired as a CEO with the Providence Health System in Southern California. Chris is a retired orthopaedic surgeon who had a practice in Burbank, California and also taught orthopaedic surgery at USC as an associate clinical professor. The Jessens are grateful to be a part of a compassionate and giving community in the Northwest, and they currently volunteer at nonprofit organizations in the Coeur d'Alene area. Their search for a way to leave a legacy to their community led to INWCF, an organization also dedicated to this goal. They established a designated endowment fund in 2015 to benefit the nonprofit entities of their choice. In the future, a portion of the principal of this fund will be used to establish an area of interest endowment fund to further fulfill Georgianne and Christopher's charitable goals.
